Commenting on the results, Mark Meller, Chairman and CEO of SilverSun, stated, “The ability of the Company to deliver profitable results in the midst of the Covid pandemic is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees, who have continued to operate as valued business partners to our thousands of customers, despite the hardships and uncertainty brought about by the pandemic.” 

“This was a solid quarter for the Company, as we now return to positive EBITDA following the sale last August of our MAPADOC EDI division (which was sold for $11.5 million).   Replacing the margin contribution from MAPADOC was a high priority for the Company.  We focused on increasing our monthly recurring revenue (“MRR”), and on increasing recurring revenue as a percentage of total revenue.  Towards that end, we merged our managed service provider and application hosting businesses, rebranding them as “Managed Cloud Services” (“MCS”).  MCS provides Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), cloud hosting for business applications, cybersecurity, business continuity and disaster recovery solutions.”

“MCS continues to grow rapidly, helped in part by the new “Work from Home” paradigm imposed by Covid.  In addition to organic growth, we now also have channel partners and resellers who are utilizing our platform and selling the service on a white label basis.   This division alone now has MRR in excess of $500,000 and climbing.  Our enterprise cybersecurity initiative, which is being offered in partnership with CyberHat, an Israeli-based Security Operations Center (SOC), has closed several transactions, with several large transactions expecting to close in the next few months.  Each of these business lines is built on a recurring revenue model.”

Meller continued, “Software sales, which consist of ERP solutions and third party add-ons which extend the functionality of the ERP solutions, grew by 32.5% this quarter, and is now up 22.0% for the first 6 months of the year.   Our marketing team is generating new leads at a record pace, and our sales organization is closing those leads with ever greater efficiency.  Our team has become adept at remote selling, a must in the current environment.”

“As a result of these efforts, EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) has increased $390,547 in the second quarter versus the same period last year, and has increased $213,209 for the first 6 months of the year versus the first six months of 2019.  We continue to focus on improving our operating efficiency and reducing expenses, and as a result, the Company’s selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) were 38.4% of revenue this quarter, versus 40.0% last year.  Similarly, SG&A expense was 39.4% of revenue for the first half of the year, versus 40.4% for the same period last year. The trend is in the right direction.   We are intent on increasing our operating margins in the coming quarters as we better manage our costs.”

In conclusion, Meller stated, “Despite Covid, we have been able to deliver a successful quarter. I am grateful to our team for their tremendous efforts in accomplishing this feat in the current environment.”
